Oregon Yellow Fever (YF) Vaccine Uniform Stamp and Vaccination Center Certification
Providers interested in giving yellow fever vaccine need to apply for a Uniform Stamp and must administer YF vaccine under the current YF vaccine standing order or pharmacy protocol.
Who can apply for a YF Uniform Stamp:
- Physician (MD, DO, ND)
- Physician’s Assistant
- Nurse Practitioner (with prescription-writing privileges)
- Certified Immunization Pharmacist
The stamp can go with the vaccinator but not across state lines as it is only approved for Oregon.
Why is the Uniform Stamp and Vaccination Center Certification required to give YF vaccine?
The Uniform Stamp allows the authorized provider to officially sign the traveler’s International Certificate of Vaccination, validating the record. The Yellow Fever Center Certification allows the authorized provider(s) to purchase and store YF vaccine.
